Choose the browser, email client and news reader that YOU want
BrowserWars picks up where Apple left off in providing an easy way to change your default web applications in older versions of OS X. Unfortunately, Apple's version favors a very few (ahem) select applications. Installing a new version of your preferred non-listed software often causes OS X to loose track of your settings, defaulting back to Internet Explorer or Mail.app. There is also a notable lack of OS X newsreader applications listed. BrowserWars fixes this by adding every web, mail and news application that we could think of. Upgrading or reinstalling your favorite programs now will no longer revert your settings to what Apple thinks is best.
